Everyone wants to find love, right? But sometimes we want to find love so bad, we get scammed over it.
A woman recently took to Reddit to ask for advice after she exposed a catfish to her friend — and the friend blamed her. It's a tale as old as time. Well, it's a tale as old as social media... but you get the picture. Here's her story.
Years ago I had a casual friendship with a lady at church, we'll call her Sally. We are Facebook friends and have 20+ friends in common. A few months ago she posted that she had a new love in her life. Then she posted a photo of an engagement ring and said she was engaged. We all sent congratulations, however she never answered comments from us asking how they met, when they were getting married, etc.
She said she was going to become the stepmom to his 13-year old (she is 70). A mutual friend messaged Sally and was told a long tale about this "fiance" - they never met in person, he was from Europe working in Canada, had a thick accent, was widowed, they used Google Hangouts....all obvious signs of a love scam. A few days pass and a new FB profile appears with this fiance, a quick reverse image search proved the man on the profile picture was not this fiance.
